BBC’s bad attempt to distract the public away from Applegarth’s Incompetence Bonus

Northern Rock 'pledges' to repay taxpayer

Wow. Talk about a bad burial! They actually tried to relegate Applegarth's 3/4 million bonus to a footnote. I do hope some of the mainstream media pick up on this story, and what the BBC has attempted to do.

  • £3/4 million bonus.

    This is the same guy who sold £2,600,000 worth of his NR shares whilst they were near their peak price.

    I wonder what he would have made if he had done a good job?

    You’re all nutcases for thinking the BBC has some hideous hidden agenda, you really are. I was watching BBC Breakfast this morning and they mentioned Applegarth’s bonus very clearly, along with Northern Rock “pledge”.

    Any odd reporting you see is down to lazy or incompetent News Editors, not some dark conspiracy. Get a grip!

  • It could have been a lot worse. I have friends whose NR shares lost £5k in value due to the share price fall; I will encourage them to write to Mr Applegarth to ask him to pay them this. maybe we all should do this

  • It does appear as an : Oh! By the way footnote, to someone who is totally impartial like me. I therefore certainly find it strange. Are BBC Editing employees so incompetent? Or are they directed? —- Who knows ? I would imagine the shareholders are wondering what is going on though, in no uncertain terms.

  • Can somebody explain to me why NR needs so much inward investment by the UK’s financial printing press? They haven’t lost any money, just moved billions offshore?
    And this guy seems to have been paid a bonus by the UK government, since I hardly think the numerous shareholders that have had their stake in a non-criminal public limited company ‘change ownership’ would be very keen to pay him… What is going on? Is this the Heist of the Century, or what?

  • Utterlee i have to agree with your comment on this article. Sorry ‘paul’ I do know what you mean. On this ocaision the BBC not only mentioned Applexxxx’s extra cash but also repeated a substanial interview with a founder member of NR’s small investor club. However one musn’t be fooled into thinking the BBC is squeeky clean. They have lost an enormous amount of credibilty worldwide following their less then clever handling of their own WTC7 prophecy.
    Has anyone heard from David Porter recently?

    Dear Richard,

    Please can tell us the source? If not can you please tell us why you are unable to? Given the many months of silence, I have to assume that you and your fellow journalists have been officially gagged from questioning any aspect of the official 9/11 story. If I am incorrect about this, please prove me wrong, by undertaking some genuine investigative journalism into the many anomalies in the official story, as summarised in the many submissions above.

    As a license fee payer I think this is a very reasonable request, and look forward to your response. Thanks.

    Andrew
